Honeybees have a new home at Crossroads at Big Creek and all are invited to the dedication of Door County Beekeepers Community Hive on June 14 at 4 pm.
Attendees gather at the Collins Learning Center and walk the short distance to the hive area, view the comings and goings of the honeybees, and explore beekeepers’ tools and equipment. Honey lemonade and refreshments are served following the dedication. The hive will be used to educate people of all ages who wish to explore the world of honeybees and beekeeping.
Crossroads is hosting a few other fun outdoor events. On June 8 meet at the small parking lot at the intersection of Canal Road and Buffalo Ridge Trail for a hike through the east side of the Ida Bay Preserve. It is easy hiking and takes about an hour. Free and open to the public.
Starting June 9 at 10 am, the Friends of Crossroads at Big Creek invite everyone to join them on Saturdays to help with invasive species removal from Big Creek Preserve. The targets for the first meeting are buckthorn and honeysuckle. Bring work gloves and loppers. There will be no meeting on June 23 because of the Crossroads Trail Run.
